issue-runner is a toolkit to retrive, set up and run Minimal Working Examples (MWEs). MWEs are defined in markdown files (such as the first comment in a GitHub issue), and external tarball(s)/zipfile(s)/file(s) can be included. It extracts sources to separate files, (optionally) invokes docker, executes the entrypoint, and cleans up.
The main use case for this toolkit is to be added to a GitHub Actions (GHA) workflow in order to monitor the issues in a repository and optionally report status/results by:
- labelling issues as
- adding a comment to the issue with logs and/or refs to jobs/artifacts,
- and/or making test artifacts available through a CI job
Nonetheless, the CLI tool can also be used to set up and test any MWE or issue locally.
